Story Behind the Song:
I was attending a program in Denver featuring Prem Rawat one year. Though I was part of a band that played at programs, we weren't part of the line-up this time. Still, I brought my guitar with me. I'd play it back in my room after each night of the four-night program. On the last night, there was some magic in the guitar, and the chord pattern and song title came out. I fleshed it out and finished the song when I got back home.

THE CREATOR came to the earth one day
But only a few would stay
To hear what he had to say

THE CREATOR said, "All of my creatures are dear
And my love for them is sincere
But only a few come near"

"The beauty of life is living
And knowing the Source of all
That's what I'm here to be giving
But only a few hear me when I call"

THE CREATOR keeps giving life for free
He does it for you and for me
It's given so naturally

THE CREATOR is longing to be known
Calling us to come home
For even He doesn't like to be alone

(Repeat Bridge)
(Repeat last verse)
